An active musician in her hometown of Melbourne, Erica has four different music projects, which are currently touring and releasing material. With one act having just completed a brief tour in the U.S, she is hoping to complete a range of solo material while a resident at Arts, Letters and Numbers. While her other endeavours fit into rock n roll and electronic categories, Erica’s solo interest lies mainly in traditional arrangements, early rhythm and blues and outsider folk. In this incarnation, music is usually played on a Spanish style nylon string guitar and generally recorded by room microphone only. Upon returning to Melbourne, there are plans to record the results of the ALN residency. Erica also has a background in literacy teaching and working with new arrival seekers of asylum in Australia.
